Visitors are coming... - Colombia - Episode 8

Updated: Jul 23, 2022

I introduced you to the knockers of Cartagena, it is now time to talk of its doors which welcome you with grace and presence.

Cartagena has a few years behind the tie. It has had more than one episode. Attacks by pirates and corsairs, holy inquisition, illnesses,... It is therefore very understandable that its inhabitants sought to protect their property, their homes, their families.

This therefore explains the grilles on the doors and windows, in addition to the nine kilometers of walls that surround it.

However, Cartagena is beautiful… even when it protects itself. The inhabitants have therefore shown great ingenuity and aesthetics to protect themselves... all in beauty.
